It comes as no surprise to us that COVID has done it’s fair share to impact the wedding industry. Whether that be for the vendors or the couples themselves this year has been anything but smooth sailing. Needless to say, when we come across a couple that decides to make the most of their circumstances, we are delighted. This gorgeous California vineyard micro-wedding features classic details and highlights the current state of the world in the best way possible!
The photographer, Corinna Rose, shares,
Tiffany & Todd were not about to let a pandemic get in the way of their Happily Ever After! Their immediate families joined them for a beautiful summer micro wedding at Leal Vineyards in Hollister. Although their celebration was not at all what these two originally had in mind, it still ended up being a joyful, romantic, and might I say- epic wedding day tucked into the rolling hills, vineyards, and summer roses.
This pair has been through a crazy few months. If you don’t already know from their engagement session post– Todd and Tiffany have been in a long-distance relationship for quite some time. Todd was camped out in Boston, finishing a fellowship. The plan was for him to finish the program, and head back for the wedding so that they could start their lives together.
I’m sure you can imagine the stress they must’ve been under not only trying to plan a wedding while living across the country AND during a pandemic, but also trying to see each other during a time when it’s not safe to travel PLUS trying to setup their first home here in California together. Talk about a triple whammy! Todd managed to return safely home just one week before the wedding and the pair quickly moved into their home mere days before their celebration. Poor Tiffany had a few bumps and bruises come wedding day from moving boxes! I pray they can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing they are married under the same roof, pandemic or not.
The photographer leaves the sweetest note to the deserving couple…
Tiffany and Todd,
thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding day. I know life has been so crazy for you both. As if a long-distance relationship and moving during a pandemic wasn’t already difficult enough! But you took the lemons life gave you and made lemonade! Your strength and resilience inspires me. If you two can get through this year, then I’m certain you can get through anything life may ever through you.
Tiffany, I won’t forget how magnificent your smile was as you walked down the aisle towards Todd. Even though you two had already seen each other for the First Look, you are still glowing with joy! Todd, don’t even get me started on those precious vows! Oh my gosh, friend. I was tearing up behind my camera! It’s clear from your spoken promises that you and Tiffany have been through so much and deserve to finally have your Happily Ever After.
Thank you again for the honor of witnessing and documenting you two tying the knot. I am so excited to see ya’ll again next year where we can hopefully party it up without face masks. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Hayano!!
